Example #1 Basic Gearman client and worker

This example shows a very simple client and worker. The client sends a string to the job server, and the worker reverses the string and sends it back. The job is performed synchronously.

<?php

# Create our client object.
$gmclient= new GearmanClient();

# Add default server (localhost).
$gmclient->addServer();

echo 
"Sending job\n";

# Send reverse job
do
{
  
$result $gmclient->do("reverse""Hello!");

  
# Check for various return packets and errors.
  
switch($gmclient->returnCode())
  {
    case 
GEARMAN_WORK_DATA:
      echo 
"Data: $result\n";
      break;
    case 
GEARMAN_WORK_STATUS:
      list(
$numerator$denominator)= $gmclient->doStatus();
      echo 
"Status: $numerator/$denominator complete\n";
      break;
    case 
GEARMAN_WORK_FAIL:
      echo 
"Failed\n";
      exit;
    case 
GEARMAN_SUCCESS:
      break;
    default:
      echo 
"RET: " $gmclient->returnCode() . "\n";
      exit;
  }
}
while(
$gmclient->returnCode() != GEARMAN_SUCCESS);

?>
<?php

echo "Starting\n";

# Create our worker object.
$gmworker= new GearmanWorker();

# Add default server (localhost).
$gmworker->addServer();

# Register function "reverse" with the server. Change the worker function to
# "reverse_fn_fast" for a faster worker with no output.
$gmworker->addFunction("reverse""reverse_fn");

print 
"Waiting for job...\n";
while(
$gmworker->work())
{
  if (
$gmworker->returnCode() != GEARMAN_SUCCESS)
  {
    echo 
"return_code: " $gmworker->returnCode() . "\n";
    break;
  }
}

function 
reverse_fn($job)
{
  echo 
"Received job: " $job->handle() . "\n";

  
$workload $job->workload();
  
$workload_size $job->workloadSize();

  echo 
"Workload: $workload ($workload_size)\n";

  
# This status loop is not needed, just showing how it works
  
for ($x0$x $workload_size$x++)
  {
    echo 
"Sending status: " . ($x 1) . "/$workload_size complete\n";
    
$job->sendStatus($x$workload_size);
    
sleep(1);
  }

  
$resultstrrev($workload);
  echo 
"Result: $result\n";

  
# Return what we want to send back to the client.
  
return $result;
}

# A much simpler and less verbose version of the above function would be:
function reverse_fn_fast($job)
{
  return 
strrev($job->workload());
}

?>

The above example will output something similar to:

% php reverse_worker.php
Starting
Waiting for job...
Received job: H:foo.local:36
Workload: Hello! (6)
Sending status: 1/6 complete
Sending status: 2/6 complete
Sending status: 3/6 complete
Sending status: 4/6 complete
Sending status: 5/6 complete
Sending status: 6/6 complete
Result: !olleH
% php reverse_client.php
Starting
Sending job
Status: 1/6 complete
Status: 2/6 complete
Status: 3/6 complete
Status: 4/6 complete
Status: 5/6 complete
Status: 6/6 complete
Success: !olleH

The client should print the result received from job server.

<?php

// switch(...) {
case GEARMAN_SUCCESS:
        echo
"result : $result \\n" ;
        break;
// }
?>
